Summary0004187: needs call to AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION, does not find de.po
DescriptionI was looking into packagein darkradiant for Debian and while on it I found a issue with the localiazation.

one thing is to ad AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION to, otherwise autoreconf won't install all required files and fail later in the build ("missing ABOUT-NLS")

Example patch (not sure what version of gettext you require; I used the latest in Debian)

Steps To Reproduce- unpack source
- issue autoreconf -if

autoreconf: AM_GNU_GETTEXT is used, but not AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION
libtoolize: putting auxiliary files in `.'.
libtoolize: copying file `./'
libtoolize: putting macros in AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR, `m4'.
libtoolize: copying file `m4/libtool.m4'
libtoolize: copying file `m4/ltoptions.m4'
libtoolize: copying file `m4/ltsugar.m4'
libtoolize: copying file `m4/ltversion.m4'
libtoolize: copying file `m4/lt~obsolete.m4' warning: The 'AM_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro is deprecated, and its use is discouraged. You should use the Autoconf-provided 'AC_PROG_MKDIR_P' macro instead, and use '$(MKDIR_P)' instead of '$(mkdir_p)'in your files. installing './INSTALL' installing './COPYING' using GNU General Public License v3 file Consider adding the COPYING file to the version control system for your code, to avoid questions about which license your project uses error: required file './ABOUT-NLS' not found
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

I'm not really an expert on automake, but I'm happy to commit the patch if it's safe for other systems than Debian as well? Will it affect building on other automake platforms?

automake is pretty portable, so I guess there won't be problems.

Also the documentation for AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION does not indicate any platform dependencies.
Of course, you can choose an older gettext version, like 0.18.1 to ensure better availability on other platforms...

Hoever, it is easy to test; just run autoreconf ...
